So, if you’re in the mood to bag a bargain and enjoy a long weekend (or a week, or two…) in paradise this May, we’re here to give you some of the highlights of things going on around here for the start of the new season. From the wonderful Ibiza weather in May to all your burning questions about the best hotels in Ibiza for the time of year, we’ve got you covered.
How busy is Ibiza in May?
It’s no secret that Ibiza is a much calmer, more peaceful holiday destination outside of the traditional summer months, but with the arrival of May comes the official start of the summer season. May to late September/early October is when the island comes into its own and is full of life and energy once again.
May also sees the exciting party calendar come into full swing, with Ibiza opening parties springing up all over the island – from the biggest clubs in San Antonio and Playa d’en Bossa to the more intimate and alternative venues in towns and villages all over the island. If you want to sample a bit of the famous Ibiza party spirit and get to grips with the home of great dance and live music, this is the time of year to visit.
But that’s not to say Ibiza in May is over crowded or too busy to enjoy – far from it. Given the school holidays are yet to start in Europe, Ibiza in May still has a somewhat calm, even exclusive feel to it, especially during the week. The island will be firmly open for business, with plenty of great bars, restaurants and attractions for you to explore, but you won’t experience the busyness you’re more likely to see in July and August during peak season. That means you get first pick of the sunbeds, and what could be more perfect than that!
